Road closed by anti-fracking demo
2:09pm 11th January 2017
Anti-fracking protesters have closed a main road in Lancashire.
They're holding a demo on Preston New Road.
It's where Cuadrilla has been given the go ahead to explore for shale gas.
It comes just a day after protesters promised to conduct their slow-walking demonstrations in a manner that would not disrupt traffic.
Many of the people at the demo have held-up deliveries to the shale gas site and are now simply standing in the road.
Police diversions are in place - creating longer journey times for people using that route.
